Anyone have any good resources they use to enhance their phonics lessons?

I agree about foundation. When you pair fundations with strong practices in Writing and reading- the Kindergarteners end up being able to leave above grade level. I use TC writing program. Which I love.

This is the best program for phonics. I have used it for 3 years. Many students come in knowing no letters and no sounds. They are able to identify and recognize all of them by December with Fundations. I was trained and love the program! I also use parts of it during guided reading. I had kindergarten students reading and writing paragraphs with sight words and digraphs by May. I highly recommend it! https://www.wilsonlanguage.com/programs/fundations/

This is great!

My school uses fundations which is great! I absolutely love fundations and have used it for the past five years. I also incorporate a little of sounds in motion. So, as I teach an isolated letter sound I pair it with a motion. When young children use more than one sense it helps them retain new information. Leapfrog- the letter factory is really good as well. I will share some videos with you that I use in my room. The letter factory/ clips of letter sounds combined- https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=neItURLvyIQ Have fun teaching- alphabet rap: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=36IBDpTRVNE Have fun teaching also has a song for each isolated letter and sound. They do sky writing just like fundations. And I also play some videos from alpha blocks when I begin teaching blending two sounds to make short words like it or at. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9FtIdRT-s6s

Apparently some states are wanting teachers to post online all the curriculum materials they are using & their lessons plans. It is for transparency. I have no problem posting all of that online. But it does open up opportunities for our lessons & materials to be scrutinized out of context. I truly believe it’s another way to undermine teachers. It allows people who know nothing about teaching to tell us how to do our job. This all started with CRT phobia.
